“The company is amongst the very few automotive components entities in India that have the capability to develop and provide system-level transfer case, torque coupler, dual-clutch transmission solutions. The issue appears to be attractively priced at a P/E ratio of 35x when compared to its listed peers,” Sharma said.
ICICI Direct said investors can subscribe to the issue for long term gains as trailing valuations discount its healthy financials. “We like the company for its technical prowess in transmission space and incremental revenue streams coming on board going forward in EV transmission as well as dual clutch transmission space,” the brokerage said.
Nirmal Bang Securities recommended investors to subscribe to the IPO, saying the company has an edge with its ability to manufacture various auto component products that very few in the market replicate. “The IPO is being offered at reasonable valuations at 39.1x FY22 earnings, considering the future growth opportunities,” it said.
